Tes DeJaeger - Brien McMahon High School - Norwalk, CT
Tes has worked tirelessly over the last year to form the Brien McMahon BKind chapter. Her inclusive nature and happy disposition have helped to make BKind one of the largest clubs in the school. She consistently worked to find ways to keep the club active while meeting each of the four elements of kindness. Apart from BKind, Tes spent her senior year as the captain of the Varsity Girls Volleyball and Girls Tennis teams. Tes always looks for ways to spread kindness. This school year she organized a club event at a local elementary school to make cards for troops overseas and organized a club caroling event at a local convalescent home. Her club advisor, Shannon, feels lucky to have had the opportunity to watch her succeed through the use of her friendly disposition coupled with her sheer determination to make the world a better place. In the fall she will be attending Goucher College in Baltimore, Maryland and plans to major in Engineering.
